Hillary Clinton: "We Don't Need 4 More Years Of The Last 8 Years"

Tonight, Hillary Clinton walked out onto the stage of Denver's Pepsi Center amid a long standing ovation and plenty of signs with "Hillary" blazoned on the front. More than 15 minutes later, Hillary Clinton walked off the stage with the delegates on their feet cheering even louder than before and a strong foundation for Barack Obama to build his case that he should be elected the next President of the United States.

Speaking on Women's Equality Day, Sen. Clinton (D - New York) made the case for women to support the Democratic nominee over the Republican.

"In 2008, he [John McCain] still thinks it's okay when women don't earn equal pay for equal work," Hillary said.

Sen. Clinton firmly tied the very unpopular George Bush to John McCain.

"It makes perfect sense that George Bush and John McCain will be together next week in the twin cities because they're awfully hard to tell apart," she said.

And finally, Hillary Rodham Clinton effectively described what it means to be Americans.

"In America, you always keep going," Hillary said. "We're Americans. We're not big on quitting."

"And remember, before we can keep going, we've got to get going by electing Barack Obama as the next president of the United States!," she continued.

From this point forward, Barack Obama's fate is in his own hands. Barack Obama nor his supporters can no longer blame a less than enthusiastic Hillary Clinton if he fails to win the White House in November. Tonight, the whole world witnessed a Hillary Clinton who is 100% behind the Democratic nominee, Barack Obama.

The ball is, how do you say it, firmly in Obama's court now.
